As the Biden administration continues to fumble its response to the latest wave of the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic, threats of additional restrictions are looming.
Last night, President Joe Biden told reporters he would implement a vaccine requirement for domestic flights if his medical team recommended it. Earlier this week, Dr. Anthony Fauci did just that.

The main problem, in addition to unconstitutional decrees issued by public health officials, is Americans have lost faith in the medical establishment to be honest and follow the science when issuing recommendations. This trust started to erode last summer when thousands of doctors pushed aside worries of "super spreader events" for leftist activists while vilifying President Donald Trump's decision to keep campaigning.

the exact moment my trust in our public heath experts began to erode was in June 2020 when they said “racism is a public health issue and therefore it’s okay to gather in public in the middle of a pandemic” https://t.co/hlg7pUfOz4— Siraj Hashmi (@SirajAHashmi) December 28, 2021
Not to mention the hypocritical behavior of Democrat leaders locking down their constituents while enjoying their own freedom.
When Americans look around and see @GavinNewsom dining at the French Laundry and yet they can’t attend church, it’s no wonder they have so much contempt for the government. The American people need policies that resonate with them, and that’s the goal of the Republican Party. pic.twitter.com/kefrYQkXIc— U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy, M.D. (@SenBillCassidy) February 26, 2021
